Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
White smoke indicates that there is coolant getting into the combustion chambers from a head gasket or cracked head. You may not notice much coolant loss because it only takes a couple of shot glasses of coolant in the chambers to produce the smoke.
You need to do a compression/cylinder leak down test to confirm this.
The PCV may fix the oil consumption if the PCV system is plugged, but NOT the coolant usage.
I gave you the absolute best way to find out for sure in my last post. We don't want to start fixing things that ain't broke.
